Someone To Cherish

Berkley. (Westcott, Bk. 8). Jun. 2021. 400p. ISBN 9781984802415. pap. $7.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Lydia Tavernor, widow of the local preacher, declares her new independence by buying a cottage and setting up house, with only her dog for company. Living alone becomes both a salvation and a curse when she catches the eye of Major Harry Westcott, the former Earl of Riverdale, who comes to Hinsford Manor injured from the Napoleonic Wars and trying to heal away from his overbearing family. Lydia and Harry’s attraction cannot be denied. When they are spotted together—kissing—the town soon paints Lydia as a woman with loose morals. The Westcott clan jumps into protective mode, shielding Harry and Lydia from gossip; there’s nothing inappropriate about a family friendship, they declare. But Harry and Lydia struggle to stay apart. What value has independence when your heart’s desire is denied?
VERDICT A must-read for fans of the series, this installment is a continuation of the high-quality characters and plot that readers have come to expect from Mary Balogh.
